1. Raymon Lull was a 13th century mystic, who believed he could build an artificial language, to express the basis of all philosophy.
It is given in thy writings of Scripture, although in a hidden manner, ye may observe if ye will look, how Adam named those that were brought before him in creation. Their name indicates to the carnal mind therir relationshps in the sex condition or question. (5747-3)
Although he published over 260 books and pamphlets in between his three missionary journeys to the muslim world, practically none of his work has been conserved; most of what remains is unpublished, with the bits that have been published being untranslated into english.
Giordano was a true genius of his time. Like most people of brilliance, he was quite misunderstood and stignatized. His writings were labeled "heretical" and most likely burnt.
Giordano Bruno was a 16th century mystic, who took up the theories of Lull, and applied them both to astrology and philosophy, as well as creating tools for perfecting his own ability of memory. He advocated the Copernican theory of the heliocentric solar system, and performed public demonstrations of his incredible powers of memory. He also advocated a universal system of expressing philosophy, based on lull's work . . . and was burned at the stake.
Gottfried Liebnitz was a 17th century genius in every field of endeavor. He was a diplomat and scientific advisor to the future King of England. Independent of Newton, he invented calculus, and simultaneously developed the modern system of calculus notation. He republished much of Raymon Lull's and Bruno's work and advocated a symbolic logic system he called combinatoria universalis, which again would put philosophy on a scientific, international footing, by being a symbolic language that all of humanity could speak and understand.
